3D Printed Dinosaurs Shouldn't have Skirts
I added a base to the dinosaur model I've been trying to print. That takes care of the uneven bottom. However, I guess I can't defeat the inevitable. The dinosaur just doesn't stay flat on the print bed.
Yesterday I printed another physical cryptocurrency token that I'll post about soon. For that printing I used a skirt to prime the extruder. After finishing I should have set the slicer to raft support for the dinosaur model but I forgot. I was getting better at remembering to at least keep it set at brim by default.
I was about 10 meters of filament into the latest dinosaur print before I realized my mistake. The curling off the print bed was more obvious in the back than the front so I just kept it going. It's for my own personal display and I might reprint this model later using glow in the dark filament. That will give me a second chance to get this model correct. Well, fourth chance I guess.

In other words close enough for now. Or as the old saying goes, "A work of art is never completed, only abandoned." I'll be posting about this dinosaur model soon. I have other things like a puzzle by @small1axe to 3D model and print.
